republican to serve in the senate in a long time, a war hero begging them to confirm that treaty, to ratify that treaty, 38 republicans voted no on some whacked out idea. >> no. that's the danger, governor, of being dismissive. and i think you're right. but the ugliness combined with their powerful moment, they are talking about breaking the president, that's the president's word, i'll break them. and to stand up and see them vote in 2012 against disability with the former standing party asking them, the ugliness of this is unimaginable. >> horrible. >> joan? >> it really was a low moment. and almost unpredictable. every time i think they can't surprise me, they surprise me again, reverend al. so governor rendell is right. it's way too early for us to crow, to say that the fever is broken. this is a sign that jim demint thinks that he's going to strip the betina off the heritage foundation. they are really a talking point tank but now it shows the ideology rather than intellect. jim demint has not had an original idea himself. he's all about platitudes. >> take a listen. >> either way, my e

that's who happen, a lot of begging and borrowing and bribery that go on to get big things done. if you were sitting in the oval office now, i know you spend time with president obama, what would you tell him are the lessons he should take from the movie on house of representatives he should conduct himself on a whole range of things over the next term? >> he's got to keep that connection closer with the public closer than it was in the first four years. lincoln had those characters coming into his office every morning. after a while people said you don't have time for these ordinary people. he said you're wrong, these are my public opinion baths. you get a sense of timing, a mastery of timing when you've got the sentiment of the country behind you. but the other lesson is not to be embarrassed about making deal. during the health care thing every deal got exposed and it looks like it's the terrible thing. it the end result that matter as long as nothing illegal happens in the meantime. >> you know, doris, you just referenced what for my money is one of the most powerful scenes in the m

'twas the night before christmas when all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse. the stockings were hung by the chimney with care in hopes that st. nicholas soon would be there. the children were nestled all snug in their beds while visions of sugar plums danced in their heads. and mama in her kerchief and in her cap had just settled our brains for a long winter's nap. when out on the lawn there arose such a clatter i sprang from the bed to see what was the matter. in a twinkling i heard on the roof the prancing and pulling of each little hoof. as i drew in my head
as almost as many counter comments as supportive comments. so it begs the question, is twitter a way to kind of unite an army of supporters? >> absolutely. technology is changing the art of persuasion. what everybody -- look at history. look at history just a few weeks ago. this guy won the white house with technology. we talked about it here before. he used technology to get re-elected. he used it to get in the first time. the only difference that he's doing this time that he didn't do the first time is he is making sure he doesn't tone down the machine. now for the very first time we have this issue that he wants the american public to weigh in on and if you think about the demographic, the president of the united states can come into the living room, a voter, up to 30, say, in their comfort zone and talk to them one on one and make an issue out of the $2,000. in their comfort zone, not on the network news, daily newspaper but in a very personal way in a way that are resonates with that demographic. i think it's going to be very impactful. >> the numbers are phenomenal. the president has n

to beg with this guy. he's got a black pistol to his head. at least four guys are standing tries to negotiate with him. i haven't made contact. we've got shots fired. self-inflicted one in the head. >> also, just a few hours ago, kansas city police confirmed belcher legally owned the gun he used to kill his girlfriend and take his own life. yesterday belcher's teammates prayed together after winning their second game of the season against the panthers, and during his sunday night halftime commentary, nbc sports bob costas expressed his views on the tragedy. >> in the coming days, javon belcher's actions and their possible connection to football will be analyzed. who knows. but here wrote jason whitlock is what i said. if javon belcher didn't possess a gun, he and cassandra perkins would both be alive today. >> joining me now you always have an interesting perspective on this. we don't know a lot of details. things are trickling in about the person life of javon and his girlfriend here. what are your thoughts on this? >> i think it's a great tragedy that that game was even played.
. that does beg the question, grover, why bother, given that both sides know where they need to move, why the games? >> well, it's not clear that both sides know. the week after the election, president obama was asked do you have to have the higher rates or could we have deductions and credits and he said he was open to negotiations. three weeks later, after thanksgiving, he shows up and all of a sudden there's a line in the sand on rates that had come out of nowhere, so the president seems to be moving the goal posts in a deliberate effort, i don't know, to extract something, to push people over the fiscal cliff. something's going on and it's not clear because he's not where he used to be. he's quadrupled the amount of taxes he demands. he now has to have rates instead of just numbers. it's going to be interesting what he is doing but it appears he's not trying to come to any agreement. his position is one that the senate, the democratic senate, has rejected in the past. >> robert reish, 60% of americans according theo a new c news/"the washington post" poll believes they should raise ta
in the woodward piece. what do you make of him? >> a lot of great woodward stories, as many questions begged as there are answers like who recorded it, who thought it was in their interest to release the recording and what is mcfarland, a respected national security from republican administrations and a long-time fox analyst, what is her side of the story? if you listen to the audio, read the quotes, it doesn't sound like it's a total joke going on there. maybe there's confusion between roger and mcfarland but there are a lot of unanswered questions about it and has people looking at petraeus, as well as fox and asking about the various roles they had through the prism of this conversation. >> but at least according to these quotes there's nothing that the general said as he's quoted that is at all out of context with what he has always said publicly, he is not planning to have a political career right now. >> on that point it's consistent. some of the other things he said are racing some beltway eyebrows. >> and speaking of eyebrows, anna winter, one of the biggest contributors being mentio
in there. >> so to my friend carter, i beg to differ. please, please let me differ. first of all, i'd like to say i'm not wildly excited about any of these names. the spending budget for these companies in the tens of billions of dollars to keep in constant need for higher band width. and verizon is a bond proxy. yielding close to 5%, it's closer to a junk bond proxy with a high grade quality to it. so i kind of like that if you're into safe investing. problem with sprint is they are the proverbial. they have not run commensurately as a business. i'm sure someone could take them out, but i'm not sure you want to buy the name just on that. >> so is there anything that would make you want to own these then, zach? >> no. i suppose if i was into -- 27 years old and needed a 4.7% yield on something i thought had a good chance of not going down a lot were verizon would be attractive for those reasons. >> well, that is certainly a reason to own them. >> right. it is as he points out 5%. at this point at this multiple at this appreciation as you sarted the segment, one of the best performers in th
